If you are using Quicken, you could track a 529 account. The steps are pretty straight forward:
1. Create a new asset account
2. Write check to 529 with the expense category being #1
3. When you receive your statement, update #1 for each fund purchase, just like a brokerage account with the security name being the exact fund you are buying. You would enter the fund's name and ticker symbol after which you can update for daily prices if you like.

If you need more detailed instructions, please feel free to holler back.
